“Marvellous Highly recommended”
Reviewed November 6, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Without hesitation our favourite holiday cottage so far ( and we have visited quite a few over the years); Hastings is a combination of lovely nature surroundings and historical places.
Swallows Nest itself - absolutely gorgeous ; Chris and Eric are the nicest guys you could come across. They made us feel welcome and looked after from the first booking email through the whole stay. The cottage is fantastic, comfortable, spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and equipped with everything you need, plus some luxury extras like jaquzzi bath and lovely swimming pool which we just could not get enough of :) The gardens look amazing even in grim weather. Our kitten loved staring at the trees through the glass kitchen door.
Overall it was wonderful and relaxing week. We give it 5 out of 5 stars and are already looking forward to our next stay .
Many thanks to Chris and Eric!

Great accommodation, clean and spacious. Loved the pool, unlimited access clean and nice temperature. Milk and other goodies much appreciated (esp as I forgot the milk!) - thank you. Hope to visit again...

“excellent people,excellent place”
Reviewed October 11, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We stayed for a week, and took our daughter and two dogs, and really enjoyed the peacefulness of the location. The cottage is modern and well equipped and the bed is to die for ,never slept so well. chris and Erick are wonderful friendly hosts, and the addition of the pool and mini gym are a great bonus and well enjoyed. We also appreciated the little touches in the cottage that they provide such as fresh flowers and a little hamper to start you off. Would recommend this little cottage for a break, and will defiantly be going back. Thanks chris and Erick!

“Amazing place”
Reviewed October 1, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

what can we say except amazingly perfect place to stay. We've stayed in lots of cottages across the country and this rates at the top, without a doubt. From the warm welcome and shown around. To the level of comfort and equipment. Perfect.. The bed is massive and sooooo comfortable. Hasting is a lovely walk from the cottage all down hill too. We also walked back its about a steady hour, but we did have our ageing dog with us. Rye and Battle are a must visit and Camber sands is just beautiful with its long sandy beach. We ate at the Two sawers in Pett. Lovely and dog friendly too. Will love to come back again at some point.

“Great Cottage, everything you would want in a holiday home”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a great time and would have liked to have stayed longer. The location was perfect. Chris, the owner, was very helpful recommending lots of places of interest nearby. The sumptuous bed was welcome end to the day and the jacuzzi bath was amazing! An added bonus of a large TV with entertainment package for a relaxing evening. We hope to go back for a longer stay in June 2016..

“Beautiful Gardens!”
Reviewed September 12, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had a great week in Swallows Nest. The cottage is very clean and has all you need with a very comfortable bed and user friendly kitchen. Fresh flowers and a welcome pack were much appreciated. The gardens are lovely and well tended with continuing improvements and planting. We swam every day and always had the pool to ourselves. Convenient location for lovely walks from the cottage and walkable to Hastings. We were lucky with weather and visited Hastings, Bexhill on Sea, Pett Level, Winchelsea, Rye and Camber Sands. Plenty of places to eat out locally but we often cooked as such a lovely cottage to come back to. Friendly owners and hope to visit again.
